Batman sequel escapes from Arkham

Arkham Asylum 2 details unveiled

The newly announced Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 will likely range beyond the Asylum walls according an interview with Rocksteady's Paul Denning published in a recent issue of PC Zone magazine.

"You could always expand [on Arkham Asylum] and there are games in the past that have gone down that route," said Denning when asked if the dev team would consider other canonical Gotham settings. "But I think you're right. Gotham itself is a fantastically realised fictional city and there are so many places that would probably be ideal for gameplay and great to explore."

Though the teaser trailer recently revealed at the VGA Awards may have encouraged fans of the first game to imagine the Dark Knight's next outing as a freewheeling adventure through a sandbox Gotham, Denning (a senior programmer on the new title) was quick to dispel those rumors.

"If Arkham Asylum had been that kind of game I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have been as good," said Denning. "I think sandbox games that do that well are so hard to realise; GTA is obviously a fantastic example of one that gets it right but there are so many that get it wrong and I think you have to be so careful when you take that route."

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
